to handle that question and did a very good job of raising that issue. john mccain made a great point today when he said people don't bring rpg's and the weaponry that was used in this attack to spontaneous demonstrati demonstration. it's relevant. here is why it matters. when they put out word this was not a terrorist attack, it was sprung out of a spontaneous uprising, it furthers the narrative al-qaeda was in disarray and that we had, by the elimination of bin laden made this extraordinary reduction in the risk in the area. as it it turns out not only was it not true in libya, but other parts of north africa as well and the fundamental question did the administration really believe that? if they did they badly miscalculated or did they know it was true and for political reasons didn't want it out there. they were eliminating the war on terror and these groups and no longer capable of care i go out attacks against the u.s. and one or the other. either they assess wrong that radical terrorists were not capable of care caring out a for the new mattress models, but sleep train's huge year en
